Sean Avery has officially been assigned to the Hartford Wolfpack. Avery issued a statement on his assignment, basically saying he was appreciative of the Rangers.
I was initially going to write about how much I don’t want him for the next three years (I still don’t, but this year is a must), that the team doesn’t want him. But you know what, it doesn’t matter what any of the players want. They put themselves in this situation, and because of their lack of effort the past month, their say means nothing to me, or to anyone. Avery should light a fire under this team’s ass, considering they scored 5 goals in 5 games during this losing streak. They need something, and they need it yesterday. Hopefully Avery provides that something. Get him up to the big club for the game in Washington.
